Engaging. Insightful. Introspective. Enlightening. DJ. Soundtrack. Toys.
Not your typical AAM session!!
If you joined AAM in Minneapolis this year, a group of people, led by Jennifer Caleshu of the Bay Area Discovery Museum, spent some time discussing GEN X in museums (and beyond!). It was an amazing hour and fifteen minutes of sharing, listening, questioning and rocking out to the best GenX playlist ever created! Participants in the session were asked to take a Post-It and write down Gen X in “One Word” or their favorite band. Here are the results (in no particular order):
Gen X in One Word:
World May Blow Up!
Latch Key Kid
Gen X Bands/Musicians:
Ben Folds Five
Ned’s Atomic Dustbin
Thee Oh Sees
What would you add to the lists? Comments?
Pragmatic. Yes, definitely pragmatic. Or realistic. Jaded? Oops, up to three words . . .
No Nirvana and Pearl Jam?!
I would also add: TwentySomething (and now ThirtySomething)
